Dear researchers & developers, (.. apologies for cross-postings)

are you interested in the workshop on *semantic data *for *biomedical 
data analytics* *(and life sciences)* ... the paper submission deadline 
has been extended to *March 13th, 2017*.

The workshop is on *May 28th or 29th, 2017 *in Portoroz, Slovenia, 
co-located with the *ESWC 2017*.

We will discuss tools, means, solutions, ontologies using biomedical 
semantics and eventually leading into biomedical data analytics.  A wide 
range of topics is acceptable (see below), the focus will be set by the 
participants.  Research teams involved in semantic data integration in 
collaborative research projects (e.g., Elixir) ... leave your footprint.

Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed for the workshop, and after the 
workshop we organise the post-workshop publication in the Journal of 
biomedical semantics.

Best wishes, have a good week,
   Dietrich + Ali

First Call for Papers to the International Workshop on
  "*SEMANTIC WEB SOLUTIONS FOR LARGE-SCALE BIOMEDICAL DATA ANALYTICS* 
(SeWeBMeDA-07)"-  co-located with *ESWC 2017*.
website: /*https://sites.google.com/insight-centre.org/sewebmeda/home 
<https://sites.google.com/insight-centre.org/sewebmeda/home>*/


*IMPORTANT DATES*
Submission deadline: Monday March 13, 2017 (extended deadline)
Notifications: Friday March 31, 2017
Camera-ready version: Thursday April 13, 2017
Workshop Date: May 28th or 29th 2017

*MOTIVATION*

A study from EMC in 2014 predicts the doubling of the available data in 
the "Digital Universe" every two years between now and 2020. This rapid 
growth is a challenge for society -- how to put the available data to 
use effectively? This is a challenge in many areas including Medicine 
and Life Sciences. Advanced technologies and the emerging Open Data 
phenomenon produce an ever-increasing amount of data, which needs to be 
interpreted and examined. To turn data into knowledge, data scientists 
need to effectively process, filter, interpret cluster and learn from 
the available data. This process currently is largely unsupported -- 
data scientists are spending time and money on processing data, 
configuring infrastructure, writing code etc., which is a large loss of 
productivity and unexploited opportunities, if data scientists with the 
necessarily skills are available at all.

To meet these challenges technologies from different areas need to be 
combined which help to execute computationally demanding tasks. Linked 
Data and Semantic Web technologies, coming from a different direction, 
help to bring heterogeneous data sources together to exploit and make 
sense of different datasets and making it easier to process semantically 
heterogeneous data.

This workshop aims to accept papers that present the anatomy of large 
scale linked data infrastructure, which covers: the distributed 
infrastructure to consume, store and query large
volumes of heterogeneous linked data; using indexes and graph 
aggregation to better understand large linked data graphs, query 
federation to mix internal and external data-sources, and linked data 
visualisation tools for health care and life sciences. It will further 
cover topics around data integration, data profiling, data curation, 
querying, knowledge discovery, ontology mapping / matching / 
reconciliation and data / ontology visualisation, applications / tools / 
technologies / techniques for life sciences and biomedical domain. 
Workshop aims to provide researchers in biomedical and life science, an 
insight and awareness about large scale data technologies for linked 
data, which are becoming increasingly important for knowledge discovery 
in the life sciences domain.

*TOPICS*

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to Semantic Web and 
Linked Data technologies in the following areas:

  * Techniques for analysing semantic data in the life sciences,
    medicine and health care
  * The description, integration, analysis and use of data in pursuit of
    challenges in the life sciences, medicine and health
  * Tools and applications for biomedical and life sciences
  * Large scale biomedical data curation and integration
  * Processing biomedical data at scale
  * Knowledge representation and knowledge discovery for biomedical data
  * Data publishing, profiling and new datasets in biomedical and life
    sciences
  * Querying and federating data over heterogeneous datasources
  * Biomedical ontology creation, mapping/ matching/ translation and
    reconciliation
  * Biomedical Ontology and data visualisation
  * Text analysis, text mining and reasoning using semantic technologies
  * New technologies and exploitation of existing ones in Linked Data
    and Semantic Web
  * Social and moral issues publishing and consuming biomedical and life
    sciences data.



*JOURNAL OF BIOMEDICAL SEMANTICS*
Top selected manuscripts will be invited for submitting paper for the 
special call at "Journal of Biomedical Semantics"

*SUBMISSIONS*
Workshop accepts three types of submissions:

 1. Full papers (up to 15 pages): Presenting novel scientific research
    pertaining to querying the Web of Data
 2. Short papers (up to 8 pages):  Position papers, System and Dataset
    descriptions, relevant to the topics of interest.
 3. Demo/Poster papers (up to 4 pages): Describe a demo or poster of a
    tool on the workshop topics.


Submissions must be in English formatted in the style of the Springer 
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For 
details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author Instructions.
*Workshop accepts PDF submissions only.*
Papers should be submitted through the EasyChair system 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sewebmeda07 
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sewebmeda07>) no later than 
midnight *Monday March 13, 2017, Hawaii Time*. Submissions will be 
reviewed by members of the workshop program committee. Papers will be 
evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical 
content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop.
